I have an old french pistol that my grandfather gave me years ago. He took it off a french pilot at the end world war 2. It is very small pistol with a clip that holds about 6 to 8 rounds. The barrell flips up. The letters MF are on the side and bottom of the grip. The writing is in french but it looks like it says manufactured by french arms of saint bienne. Can anyone tell me anything about this gun. I want to know about it so I can pass on to my son. I appreciate your help.

Hey, Mr. RUEDAWG welcome to the forum. Glad you joined us.

I may be mistaken, 'cause we have a few members who are so good at firearms ID that they can do it by smell.

But they could probably do it better with pics!

Did the French really fly during WWII?

There was a French squadron in the RAF.

Thanks, I didn't know that. Must've killed 'em to fly British planes! I thought the poster might have been confusing WWII with WWI.

I had no idea until I Googled it.

There was also mention elsewhere of a French WWII recon pilot who was being honored, but no mention of his squadron or affiliation.
